Johnson Matthey (JM), a global leader in sustainable technologies, announced earlier this month that its new battery materials facility in Konin, Poland has received a combined EUR135 million investment from two leading development banks, in yet another boost for the commercialisation of eLNO and the electric car industry.

The joint financing comprises a EUR90 million loan from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and a EUR45 million loan from KfW IPEX-Bank.

JM's Konin site will produce cathode materials for electric car batteries and will become the world's first production site for eLNO, its portfolio of ultra-high energy density next generation cathode battery materials. These are expected to improve the performance of lithium ion batteries and help promote electric vehicle usage on a larger scale.

The production capacity in Konin will be 10,000 tonnes of eLNO per year, enough for around 100,000 fully electric vehicles. In addition, the site, which will start production in 2022, has the potential to expand tenfold through further investment. Construction of the plant began this year.

JM aims to make the manufacturing of its products energy efficient by using automation technology and electricity from renewable sources. JM also plans to reduce emissions from battery production to minimise the environmental impact and has committed itself to the United Nations'Sustainable Development Goals. More broadly, as part of the Global Battery Alliance, the company is helping to make the battery value chain more sustainable.

Grzegorz Zieliski, EBRD Regional Director Central Europe and Head of Poland, commented: 'We are very pleased to finance this landmark project, which marks a big step forward in making electric cars not only an environmentally friendly, but also an increasingly competitive and attractive, alternative to traditional vehicles. We also welcome the creation of new jobs and expect further positive impact from the know-how transfer associated with this important investment.'

Echoing this comment, Markus Scheer, member of the Management Board of KfW IPEX-Bank, said: 'We are very pleased to contribute to the further development of innovative car batteries that support e-mobility and thus environmental and climate protection, working together with valued European partners such as the EBRD.'

Christian Gunther, Chief Executive, Battery Materials at Johnson Matthey, said: 'Construction of the new plant in Konin is a significant milestone in the commercialisation of our eLNO battery cathode materials. Supported by this funding, we plan to have eLNO in production on auto platforms by 2024, enabling the shift to electric vehicles and a cleaner, healthier world for us all.'
